💻 Sign Ups –

  • 📩 Reminder –  We cannot guarantee a specific delivery time to your inbox.  The sign up for tee times usually comes out on Sundays around 7 p.m. Our sign up coordinators, Michelle and Anne, do a great job of being right on time most weeks.  Like us all, they are busy people with lives outside of golf and sometimes may send it out up to a couple of hours early if necessary to ensure it gets out in plenty of time.  They cannot set a send-time electronically, a human has to push the send button.
  • ⏰ Early tee times –  Your GWGA board meets 1-2 times during the golf season and 2 times off-season.  We have difficulty finding meeting times convenient for all of us, so we are meeting this season on 2 Thursdays following golf.  One was this past Thursday and the other date will be August 25.  We will play together in the first 3 foursomes so that we can finish together, have our meeting and close-out the day’s tournament.  We will take most of the early slots (versus later slots) because the meeting adds 1-2 hours to our day and we need to get home by 3.  It will be an all day thing for us,  gone from home about 8 hours.  We appreciate your understanding about our taking these early times once or twice during the season.  With this exception, early times have always been and will continue to be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • 🏌 Thursday, Sep 1, Forest Greens Golf Course – Sep 1 will not be a league day.  Greendale management is hosting Arlington Seniors that day.  As a result, Peter Kim arranged for us to play at Forest Greens for $35, cart included.  We will also be able to play Greendale on Friday Sep 2, at the weekday rate.  Sign ups for both of these dates will come out 3 weeks early so that both Forest Greens and Greendale can know how many slots to reserve for us.

👏 Pace of play and ready golf improved – Our pace has improved the last few weeks and we appreciate the efforts everyone has made in this regard!  Let’s keep it up and we should have no further issues in this regard.  Good report from the starter the last few weeks!

⛳️ Lift, clean and place – Reminder that when it is cart path only, or when Greendale posts a sign near the #1 tee box that says “winter rules”, you may lift, clean and place in the fairway.

📝 Scorekeeping – Reminder that members may not refuse to keep score.  Two cards must be kept by two different people; preferably only one card per cart.   A foursome turning in only one card, or two cards kept by one person may result in disqualification.

 🤔 Who to ask, who to tell, what to do?  – You have finished golfing, something occurred during the round and you have questions 🙄 or concerns 😳but don’t know who to tell/ask?  Never lose any sleep over anything on the golf course!!  We exist to have FUN!  You may always contact our President, Sally Reams, our Vice President, Lucinda Audey or our Tournament Chair, Eileen Ruzicka.  Together we have over 15 years of GWGA experience and love our league!   BUT – Rules question?  🤓 contact our Rules Chair, Sue Spatcher.  You can find their contact information here.
